In I Cry So You Can REMEMBER, I challenge myself to create my own vision of beauty using dead, discarded, material, broken tree branches. I turn them into visual forms, void of their prior purpose, comprised of lines and create artificial teardrops using thermoplastic adhesive. My photographs, drawings and video encapsulate the moment when these tears begin to fall off the branches as if they are crying, mourning themselves before their death. Together these conflicting darks and lights of the materials as well as the contrasting linear and organic quality of the materials yield a complex visual of beauty and loss.
